Tungz have announced their debut album, ‘A Good Dream’.
Set for release on 17th February via Heist or Hit, the record’s preceded by new single ‘80,000’ and a video that sees them appearing on a 70s-esque TV show.
“80,000 is about the smallest heartbreaks we face,” the band explain. “The ones that follow relationships that aren’t even relationships. They might be just a look or an idea that forms based on seeing someone one time in a park. These heartbreaks really sting because you’re not even supposed to care about them. The unfairness of that along with the death of all the possibilities of the life you might have had with that person makes for something extra shallow and extra sore. And all that happening 80,000 times in one day. Boy oh boy.”
“The video for 80,000 was inspired by a question that we often consider as a band: how derivative is too derivative?” They add. “Popular culture is saturated with throwbacks and references (something we aren’t completely innocent of as a band). TV shows and musicians are directly ripping old looks and getting credit for being inspired and original. Sure we all love the 70s, but when the scales tip over into parody – and people applaud things in all their parody-ness – the whole thing just feels a bit gross. So, we went gross with this vid. Really gross.”
